Since I'm quickly becoming a once a week blogger...(do you wait with bated breath?????)...
I had my first evaluation conference with the superintendent this week. It's hard to believe that the first quarter of the school year was over last Tuesday. He came to our faculty meeting then stayed and talked with me. It went better than I EVER could have imagined. I won't bore you with the details but he was very complimentary and helpful and shared a lot with all of us about his dreams for the future of our new school. I came away feeling inspired and with the sense that I'm doing what he wants done. Oddly though, I'm having a (hopefully short) "spell" worrying about every single little thing about work. I am a big believer in being appropriately concerned but this transcends that...I'm fretting and obsessing. For about 24 hours after the meeting I was floating on a cloud...then this. Any ideas??
In a good solid attempt to forget about work, Hank and I headed to Clemson for the weekend. BOY OH BOY did the Tigers show up and play some good football against the Ramblin' Wrecks from Georgia Tech. Bless their hearts, the were indeed a wreck. They reminded me of our boys the three consecutive weeks before the Maryland game. We enjoyed a great tailgate and one of my favorite things to do...singing We Will We Will ROCK YOU with 80,000 of my friends in Death Valley on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.
Legare was in Greenville for the Furman Homecoming and inauguration of Rodney Alan Smolla as its eleventh President. He's an impressive man to be sure and we won't hold that law degree from Duke against him. I guess he couldn't get in at Chapel Hill...ANYHOW, we had a lovely breakfast on Saturday morning with Legare his pal Richard before they headed to their game and we headed to ours. It was a good day (and then I went to bed and dreamed all night about work...AARRGGHH!)
Lorelai is coming home next weekend for Fall Break and I know what she has on her mind. Shopping! Luckily, I get my own little fall break on November 1 and 2, while she's here. Can't beat that! We may have a little at home tailgate party on Saturday while we watch the Tigers play at Boston College. That sounds like a good little project for me this week.
Hang in there friends...one month from tomorrow (Monday) is Thanksgiving Day and two months from tomorrow is CHRISTMAS Day!
